Holbeck knows how to party! 13 of the area’s community groups got together over the Jubilee weekend to hold a party.
Organiser Ian Pickup tells South Leeds Life that the event, in St Matthew’s Community Centre, had a visitor in the form of the Deputy Lord Lieutenant Major Stan Hardy. Hilary Benn MP and his wife also attended. All partygoers got a souvenir jubilee mug.
Meanwhile, residents at Beeston sustainable development Greenhouse also came together to celebrate the Jubilee, enjoying a garden party in the courtyard with their neighbours.
With a BBQ, tea-pot cocktails, garden games, an abundance of home baking, impromtu musical performances from guitar players amongst the group, and a visit from the ‘Queen’ herself a great afternoon was had by all.
